Steve Turner is pleased to present Disappearing Act, a solo exhibition by London-based Ellie MacGarry that features recent paintings which depict human bodies in bodies of water. The subjects are submerged to varying degrees with the water functioning as a transparent veil that both conceals and reveals the body. MacGarry uses layers of transparent paint to alter perception and to suggest transformation.
Ellie MacGarry (born 1991, Cambridge) earned an MA at the Slade School of Fine Art, London (2018) after earning a BFA at the University of Leeds (2014). She had a solo exhibition at Daniel Benjamin Gallery, London (2019) and has had works in numerous group exhibitions in Europe and the United Kingdom since 2013. Disappearing Act is MacGarry’s second solo exhibition with Steve Turner.
